Some Wikipedia lists

Joan of Arc and her mythological sword

Last week I asked both Twitter and Cohost for their favorite Wikipedia lists. I have gathered my favorites of the responses below.

Finally, these three were suggested by basically everyone:

Public domain 2023, bearded dragon wigs, etc

Sorry I haven’t been updating much lately! I’m going to try to do these weekly in 2023, even if I don’t have a lot of things to link.

  • New year means new works entering the public domain! This year’s big get is Sherlock Holmes, which has been under the thumb of a shitty estate for ages. Other works that stood out to me looking at the list include Goodnight Moon, The Jazz Singer, and Metropolis. Also, the designs of the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge are now in the public domain, so I guess you can, uh, make more of those?
  • Sometimes I just go through the Wikimedia Commons Pictures of the Day and look at good pictures.
  • I cannot vouch for the quality of these because I don’t have a bearded dragon to test them on, but this is a website that sells tiny hats, wigs and other costumes for bearded dragons and other pet reptiles. You’re welcome.

Space photos, Partizan and Defunctland

Sorry I’ve not been posting Monday updates for a bit! Preparing for Black Friday and then having Black Friday was a lot.

  • Defunctland has a great new video out about the Disney Channel 4-note sting that plays at the end of their self-promo commercials. This, like most Defunctland videos, sounds kind of boring. It’s actually extremely interesting. I know it’s hard to sell a 1 and a half hour YouTube documentary about the Disney channel but I swear to god this is worth it.
  • I finally caught up with Friends at the Table. Now is a good time to jump in with Partizan, since the sequel season, Palisade, is starting soon. It’s a mech anime actual play podcast, meaning they play a Dungeons and Dragons style game that tells a story. If you like giant robots, drama and feelings, it’s a great jumping in point.
  • I found a whole bunch of public domain photos of Earth taken from on board the ISS space station. They’re all public domain, so you can use them for whatever.

I don’t have anything else, I’ve been super busy! Hope everyone’s having a great December so far.
